Bio

AACT has its origins at the first PMCA Conference that was held in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at Lehigh University in 1947. At the time, the PMCA was a regional association, based in Pennsylvania, USA. During this conference, candy makers, candy technologists and persons interested in candy making met to discuss the idea of organizing a national technical association. Hans Dresel, the chairman of the PMCA conference was also present at this meeting. As part of this meeting they discussed simple problems encountered in candy making such as the boiling and inversion of sugar, why the candy was sticky, dark candy, dull chocolate and everyday problems that still exists even today. Scientifically, they did not know the reason for a problem or what caused it or how to eliminate it. They did not know what to call this group, but the candy technologists were to continue to meet and exchange ideas on candy making using a more modern approach to benefit candy technologists from all over the country.
